Wales for Africa - Stories of Success

Martha Musonza Holman of Love ZimbabweI have just completed a commission from the Welsh Assembly Government to write a book about how Welsh communities and groups are linking with African communities - to mutual benefit.

I've had the privilege of meeting many selfless, inspiring people while researching this - including Wales' only black fair trade producer, Martha Musonza Holman of Abergavenny, and Angela Gorman, who has saved many lives of pregnant mothers in Chad.

The 12 case studies will be published by Cynnal Cymru - Sustain Wales next month, in print and on their web site.

Satirica is out!

Satirica coverI have two stories in this hardback collection of satirical speculative fiction published by Cowboy Logic in the States. They are Perfection, and a Doc Chaos story - The Last Laugh.

Perfection is a cautionary allegory about addiction, glamour and politics.

The Last Laugh contemplates the end of civilisation - and imagines the glee of Doc Chaos as we fell prey to the lies we wanted to believe.

You can buy it on Amazon for around £9 - for 24 hardcore tales.

I've also just finished working on a book of case studies - 'Wales 4 Africa' for the Welsh Assembly Government - and meeting totally inspiring people!
